Have you been told that you “just have to live with it”? That the best you can hope for is to “manage” your pain, discomfort, anxiety, and depression?
It’s not true. Brains change. We can change our brains and change our lives.
Learn and practice, in a supportive environment, how to use brain science (neuroplasticity), along with practical, creative, well-studied and effective techniques which can reduce and eliminate your symptoms so you can:
- Feel better
- Have more energy
- Do more (“get your life back”)
- Strengthen your immune system
- Get the most out of medical treatments
Would it help you to talk with a compassionate physician about your health? To spend enough time on the concerns that you have about your health and healing? To have help navigating the medical system and supporting your inner ability to heal? Are you in the midst of a stressful transition of any kind? Do you want to know more about the mind-body connection and holistic healing?
In my Medical Counseling practice, I help individuals and families who live with illness, pain, stress, and medical conditions to achieve a sense of balance, inner strength, and wholeness.
Do you want a physician on your health care team who can do that?
You are already a whole person: body, mind, emotion, and spirit. You have resources inside you which can help you to heal. Together, we will use the mind-body connection and tools such as guided imagery, meditation, movement, art, and music, which can help medical treatments work better, decrease your stress, and help you feel better.
As an experienced family physician, I can examine your individual situation and review the diagnosis and treatment recommendations from your other physicians and health care providers. We can work on medical decision-making. Then we can evaluate any other medical care that may be of benefit to you, including both standard and complementary/alternative care, as well as preventive care and stress reduction, going “outside the box” whenever necessary.
